As a leading provider of API development tools, Austin-based Stoplight has built a customer base across many industries, serving organizations like Deutsche Bank and Electronic Arts in addition to scores of small and medium-size businesses. And although it does not ingest any personally identifiable information (PII) into its own systems, Stoplight customers–especially large enterprises and financial services companies–increasingly require the completion of long, complex security and regulatory questionnaires to ensure all vendors adhere to the same standards.
“Security is one of the first, and often the last, topics of discussion in all of our sales conversations with large enterprises these days,” said Brandon Somers, CFO at Stoplight. “The onus on tech startups to be able to demonstrate that they have their security ducks in a row is something that is really important today.”
However, having to keep up with frequent security questionnaires strained Stoplight’s business velocity, delaying time to market for new features and prolonging sales cycles.
